    I see some unusual edge on this coin in left corner. I'm not sure that is off centre, maybe is hammered die error IMG_2019-04-25_20-43-30.jpg IMG_2019-04-25_20-42-41.jpg

    It is called a Misaligned Die Strike..
    Not Off Center Strike.

    Nothing rare and common on many Cents minted in the 1970's

    Welcome to Coin Talk !!
    No offense, but a round coin does not have corners. It is described as a Clock Face : Top center is 12:00, bottom center is 6:00, right side center is 3:00, left side center is 9:00. Etc.
    Describing a location on a coin in this manner helps members to know where to look for what you're interested in asking about. :D

    Here's some info about MAD ( Mis Aligned Die ) strikes that may help you in your searches. You can choose a topic from the list on the upper left. My advice would be to take your time and read them all. There is a LOT to learn about Numismatics.

    Just click on the weird symbol. It'll take you there.

    Nothing rare, like Paddy said, but kind of neat, nonetheless.
